Varicose Veins

More than 80 million Americans have a venous disorder. Phlebology (www.phlebology.com), the field of medicine that deals with vein disease is made up of physicians dedicated to this specialty.

Common Causes

Poorly functioning vein valves lead to pressure buildup inside veins under the skin surface. Over time, bulging veins develop and lead to symptoms of pain, swelling, heaviness, fatigue, itching and restless legs. Both men and women are affected by varicose veins, but it is more common in women (55%). Pregnancies, prolonged standing, hormonal factors and wearing high heeled shoes can all contribute to the development of leg vein problems.
